Fahrenheit 9/11

This state has voted with the winner in...
Mike, you know I wouldn't do this
if it weren't big:

Florida goes for Al Gore.
CNN announces that we call Florida
in the Al Gore column.

Then something called the Fox News Channel
called the election in favor of the other guy.
Sorry to interrupt you;
Fox News now projects George W. Bush
the winner in Florida
and thus it appears
the winner of the Presidency of the United States.
All of a sudden the other networks said,
"Hey, if Fox said it, it must be true.
All of us networks made a mistake
and projected Florida in the Al Gore column.
It was our mistake.
Now what most people don't know
is that the man who was in charge
of the decision desk

at Fox that night,
the man who called it for Bush
was none other than Bush's first cousin,
John Ellis.
How does someone like Bush
get away with something like this?
Well first,
it helps if your brother
is the Governor of the state in question.
You know something,
we are gonna win Florida,
mark my words.
You can write it down.
make sure the chairman of your campaign
is also the vote count woman.
And that her state has hired a company
that's gonna knock voters off the roles
who aren't likely to vote for you.
You can usually tell 'em
by the color of their skin.
Then make sure your side fights
like it's life or death.
I think all of this talk about
legitimacy is way overblown.
And hope that the other side
will just sit by and wait for the phone to ring.
And even if numerous independent investigations
prove that Gore got the most votes...
If there was a statewide recount,
under every scenario,
Gore won the election.
It won't matter,
just so long as all of your daddy's friends
on the Sue-preme Court vote the right way.
While I strongly disagree
with the Court's decision,

I accept it.
